If you have a picky eater, try serving this with a slotted spoon to eliminate the liquid; then make sure to separate the meat from vegetables on the plate.

1. Place first 4 ingredients in a 5-quart electric slow cooker; toss gently.

Add onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until onion begins to brown. Stir in broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat; stir in mustard and next 5 ingredients.
